Programmed Cell Death
A successfully executed attack on my cancer cells will work on two
fronts. (1) The androgen ablation phase will deprive the cancer
cells of their "food supply" - androgens. The androgen dependent
cells will begin to starve and will be unable to divide. After three
months of initial deprivation of "food" the cells will be bombarded
with a high energy particle beam generated by a particle accelerator.
Both normal cells and cancer cells are degraded by the radiation
but the normal cells recover faster while the degradation of the
cancer cells is cumulative.
As the radiation strikes the cancer cells it disorients the
genetic material in the DNA. This prohibits the production of protein
which is necessary for the cell to survive. In addition, certain
biological changes also take place in the cell which ultimately
result in the death of the cell. An analogy might be a computer
driven attack by an enemy. Consider that you had the technology to
bombard all the enemy command and control computers with a special
form of radiation which completely scrambles the computer program
code. Unable to properly function, the computer enters into a self
destruct mode which also causes the destruction of the enemy forces.
The cancer cells do not die an instantaneous death when struck by
the radiation. Rather, their internal genetic code is scrambled and
they die over a period of months after the treatment stops. This
programmed death is monitored by measuring the PSA which falls to
below 1.0 as the cells die.
The additional attack provided by the androgen ablation has been
proven to significantly improve results. A much more rapid decrease
in the PSA provides this evidence along with microscopic examination
when cells are removed during a test biopsy. The cancer cells die at
a much faster rate and cure rates as high as 95% + are possible,
based on biopsy studies, using the combined attack on the cancer
cells. The cure rate is very dependent on the stage at which the
disease is treated. The highest percent of cure rates apply to those
cases which are caught early. Treatment of advanced cases may produce
significantly lower rates of cure.
